Bows

Jump to: navigation, search

Bows are a type of ranged weapon that fire arrows as ammunition. Unlike repeaters, most bows are semi-automatic, however there are a few fully automatic bows that can be obtained late Hardmode.

The best modifier for bows is Unreal, with the exception of Wooden Bows and early ore bows, whose lack of knockback make its best modifier Demonic instead.
